I have been donating on a monthly basis to Free Press for quite some time now. I view this organization as essential to the maintenance of our "free" society. I am a lawyer representing indigent defendants in criminal appeals. In my work, I see the steady chipping away of constitutional rights by our courts in one result-oriented opinion after another.

General Member of the Public & I'm not sure how to answer this question. I haven't worked for Free Press. As I said, I represent indigent defendants in criminal appeals in California.
